Hello Chocolate !

You can live anywhere in Sarasota County and your child could attend Pine View. Venice High School is one

of those great traditional all America type high schools with lots of happy kids. Pine View is also a wonderful

school with a fast paced learning and a demanding study / and home work criteria. My daughter just

graduated from Pine View June :09. It's a great school BUT it takes a HUGE amount of work,. I know families that have children going to both schools and either school will get your child into every college / university. If a child starts off at Pine View they can easily switch to Venice High...that is common...... Palmer Ranch, Osprey, Nokomis are all just a few minutes away.......

Here is a link that allows you to input an address and will show what school your child will attend

All of the neighborhoods in the Osprey / Nokomis section are very close to Pine View

*** Pine View School Busses pick up kids anywhere in Sarasota County

Pine View is actually located in Osprey and is part of Sarasota County School's success stories. It is a nationally recognized program that U. S. News and World Report ranked as the sixth best school in the country.

Students must test into the school that was developed to accomodatre the needs of gifted learners to be able to attend programs offered to students in grades 2-12. The general student population for this location attend Laurel Nokomis Emementary, Laurel Nokimis Middle School, and Venice Senior High.

As previously mentioned, many parents consider homes in a close proximity to Pine View School for convenience purposes. Rivendell, Sorrento Shores, Willowbend, and South Bay are considered prime locations and targeted by these families.

Hi Chocolate, This home is in Rivendell which is a great subdivision along Oscar Scherer State Park in Osprey FL. The public school system for this location is Venice High but Rivendell is very close to the Pine View School which as Lucy said is a magnet school. It is a public school grades K - 12 but it is for the gifted and you must test for entrance into this school. One of the many reasons buyers choose to live in Rivendell or surrounding area, is because of the location to the Pine View School. If a child living in this area does not pass the test gaining entrance to Pine View, then they would attend Venice High School.

Below is a link to info. about the Pine View School.

My best,

Yes, Lucy was correct, this property is districted for Venice High School. Pine View is a public gifted school that has grades 2-12th. You must pass several tests for entrance. I have two children the currently attend Pine View-one in 10th and one in 5th. I hopefully have another child going there in a few years. It is an absolutely fabulous school and we couldn't we happier with it. I have written an entire page about Pine View on my website listed below.

If you have any questions about this school or the area I'd be happy to answer them.

Pine View is a magnet school. This property is probably districted for Venice, unless you apply for your children to attend Pine View.
